ENTERTAINMENT AND PUBLIC AREAS
Elation is loaded with bars, lounges, swimming pools, hot tubs, and show venues, all of which adhere to a theme that celebrates distinguished figures of literature, cinema, and music. Elation Way, the ship’s main promenade, is the gateway to the action. From the ship’s action-packed casino games to the piano tunes at Duke’s Bar, Elation offers activities to suit all types. Deck areas bustle with water activities, and live music animates the main Lido pool. Cruisers harboring a need for quiet time head to the Mark Twain Library or the Card Room.
Bars, lounges, and casinos:
At the center of Elation’s packed schedule of entertainment is the Mikado Lounge, a 1,300-seat theater that hosts multiple comedy, audience-participation, and Vegas-style revues daily. Costumes and sets are elaborate, and the Funship dancers offer high-spirited, precision choreography. The two-deck high lounge also holds important informational meetings, such as the debarkation talk, for passengers.
Carnival offers a wide range of shore excursions, including walking tours, kayak trips, trolley rides, lobster bakes, pub crawls, and wine tastings. A shore excursions talk, held in the Mikado Lounge and re-run on the cabin TVs, provides an overview of each activity. Passengers can book excursions online, onboard via cabin TVs, or at the shore excursion desk. No last-minute discounts are offered, but late-comers can often join a tour on the dock or swap a pre-booked trip for another one in the same port. A 25 percent fee is levied on any cancellations, and no refunds are offered on tours cancelled within 24 hours of arrival.
Some of the most popular offerings are:
Elation’s youth experience includes free activities for four separate age groups ranging from 2 to 17 years; these programs run from early morning until late evening daily. Options include everything from toddler tumbling to teen dance-offs. Young passengers engaging in scavenger hunts, ping-pong tournaments, or arts and crafts activities can also be seen onboard. Facilities include the 2,400-square-foot Camp Carnival Children’s World, a children’s play pool, and a video arcade.
Activities are available for the following age groups:
SPA AND FITNESS
Elation’s 12,000-square-foot spa and gym complex is housed on the 12th-level Sports Deck, which also is home to a beauty salon and aerobics room. The spa area is devoted to health and well-being, with seminars, such as “Detox for Health and Weight Loss,” running daily. Treatments are tailored to the individual, and spa menus are offered for both men and women. Selections range from seaweed massages to facials to cellulite reduction. The adjacent fitness room offers free weights, treadmills, and a host of additional aerobics training equipment. For those wanting additional options, the ship’s jogging track and mini-golf course are located just one deck above.
